dc.description.abstract Social inequalities today are becoming more concerning as global economies are changing at a rapid pace with the increases in technological development. In the studying the Japanese economy, it is apparent that there are many inequalities; particularly within the healthcare system in Japan. Through the analysis of Japanese economic statistics, as well as the research of the Japanese healthcare system, social inequalities and health inequalities are distinctly manifested throughout Japan’s society. From reviewing the data and observations regarding these inequalities, it is imperative to view previous attempts at reforming equality in Japanese society, as well as look forward toward new policies of equality. The research provided within this paper will support the call for social policy reform in Japan while also demonstrating the underlying inefficiencies in the economic and healthcare sectors.
